Yesterday, December 28, I received the great news that I am out of the Neutropenia period. Although I do not have to wear a mask all the time, it is recommended to wear when I large crowds, or if there is a possibility that someone is sick. I will need to maintain optimal hand hygiene though.
December 29 is also the day I receive the first dose of Rituximab. The precedure took about 3 hours, much like the earlier chemo sessions, it was completed in a private room, with a nurse checking in on me.
It’s coming down to the end.
This past night every few hours I would wake to hiccups. As I had hiccups for about 24 hours. No pain, just the discomfort of not stopping. When I go to the consultation this morning, I will ask if this will occur often, and if there is medication for this.
Breakfast – oat meal
Lunch – Spaghetti , soup
